First Trip to the Ocean!

We made it to North Carolina to visit our dear friends David and Kristi! It was REALLY great seeing them again. There is just something to be said about old friends where you can pick up where you left off, not just reminisce of days gone by. The Mizes are those kinds of friends, and we had such a fun time.
After dinner and a good night sleep, we took off for the beach. This was the girls first time ever to the ocean! They had a great time. Honestly, there wasn't much difference than Lake Michigan, because the water was still really cold this time of year, and the waves were very small that day. I don't think they even noticed that it was salt water because it was so cold!

I just had to get a picture of Josh carrying the Hello Kitty bag. he he






Emma the brave! She was the first to run to the water.




Addie did NOT like the ocean. After getting in for a second, this is the closest she would get.




Josie, on the other hand, LOVED it!




Emma spent the majority of her day collecting shells. She was a little sad at the end of the day when Daddy said she could only take as many as she could carry in one hand. She picked some nice ones though. :)

In answer to your questions... We went to Jackson Coney Island, and Grace goes to bed @ 8:00. I relize that is the same time she complains that she is feeling poor, but I don't really think they are related, because she complains whether she is going to bed or not. Last night no complaints so I am praying these are finally the right meds. :)
